“You should claim for that”. These wise words were said to me today by a claim company tout as I hobbled by on crutches with my leg in a plaster cast.
idea. Problem is my ankles joints have collapsed over the years due to diabetic neuropathy resulting in re arranged bones held together by metal bolts. I need crutches to walk and have had either/both legs in plaster for 6 out of the last 10 years. Considering the kind offer I just need one vital piece of information- who to claim against for 34 years of type 1.
1. My parents for giving me wonky genes
2. The person who gave me flu when I was 11 which preceded my diagnosis.
3. Myself for being a rebel during my student years.
4. Any other ideas ……..?
So before I track the generous man down and make my claim I just wanted to ask who would your claim be against and what kind of compensation would be justified for having diabetes. I’ll make sure its a no fee company just on the off chance I’m not successful.

I’m reminded of the Billy Connolly film “the man who sued god”
Other than that me & my wife have a running joke that its an STD since I’m a long termer & she got it 18 months after we started seeing each other.

well you’re the only other one we’ve found.
From chatting in the clinics everyone assumes we’re just two diabetics who hooked up, apparently that happens a lot… (Almost) in the words of bon jovi “diabetes is a social disease”
When I tell a new doc/nurse its an STD you can see the cogs turning, wondering if anyones done any research!
